Annie is shown in shadow. An image illustrates her skeleton, brain, and spinal cord.

ANNIE: The spinal cord is inside your spine, or backbone.

ANNIE: The nervous system controls activities you do without even thinking, like breathing and sweating. It also keeps your heart beating.

ANNIE: It helps you sense different temperatures,

Side by side animations show a hot drink and a cold drink.

MOBY: Beep!
